Perceptual Adaptation: Stratton did an experiment where he wore glasses that were upside down and left to right. He adjusted after 8 days. People didn’t adjust by perceptually converting their strange world to normal views. But they adapted to the context and learnt how to coordinate movements. Experiences, assumptions, and expectations give us a perceptual set which means we decide to believe things and then we perceive them based on what we believe. We determine to a certain extent we decide what we see. The thing that determines our perceptual set is our preexisting schemas

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
